Panther power: Potomac Falls holds off Broad Run’s rally

Broad Run has dominated Potomac Falls on the gridiron for the last decade. The Panthers last defeated the Spartans in 2006. That changed Aug. 26 as Potomac Falls grinded out a 16-10 victory over host Broad Run in front of a packed house in Ashburn.

2016 Broad Run Spartans football preview

At least when it comes to on-field performance, the Broad Run Spartans don’t always meet their goals.But that’s mainly because of how high they’ve set the only one they have. After back-to-back Virginia 5A state quarterfinals appearances in 2013 and 2014, the Spartans came up a game short of that round last season and, even more, their overarching goal of practicing beyond Thanksgiving in late November.

Garcia narrowly misses Olympic bid: “I gave it everything I had”

For six-and-a-half laps of Thursday's 3,000-meter women's steeplechase final, Broad Run High School graduate Stephanie Garcia appeared to be running with power, control and confidence. With Garcia, a former All-America at the University of Virginia, leading or close to the lead from the start at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, a top three finish and a trip to the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games seemed hers for the taking.
